Artist Info

Christine Longmire

I am a self taught  animal and landscape artist, I have drawn and painted since childhood.

This hobby has gradually grown and become a full time occupation. I grew up and went on to work on our family farm which lies on the edge of the Lake District. This is where my interest and inspiration stems from, the beautiful surrounding landscape and the animals I’ve lived and worked with.

Working amongst livestock has given me an insight into their natural behaviour, conformation and breed characteristics which I love to capture in my work.

As well as commissions and originals for sale I produce limited edition prints and greeting cards.

MEDIA

I mostly use gouache which enables me to produce paintings with great detail and depth of colour though I also do some work in acrylic and pencil.

CATEGORIES

My subjects are mostly cattle, sheep, horses and dogs.
